Amazing Day

Had an amazing tour with Juan of Chelsea Market, the Highline, and Hudson Yard. Juan was very knowledgable about the area, the history and fun facts along the way. He made sure we had everything we needed and kept us moving at a good pace. He was upbeat, fun and caring. I would request Juan for another tour for sure.

Do it!

Fantastic food tour (Williamsburg Bites Brooklyn Food Tour). Plenty of food and a great variety. Our guide even entertained my teenagers and made sure my seven year old always had something he liked. A great way to spend the afternoon.

Very informative, delicious and enjoyable.

Our guide knew the area's history and current best places to eat. She was both interesting and pleasant. Our tour turned out to be a private one, because the other tourists couldn't make it, but I would think she would be able to make it a nice tour for a group as well. The area is full with history and very good places to eat, I had never eaten so good in NYC.

Excellent way to experience the local way.

I was recommended this tour through a friend and it was the best decision I made during my weekend trip to N.Y. from Toronto. I have visited N.Y. several times but had never ventured into Brooklyn. Walter our guide was funny, knowledgeable and kept things interesting. The spots were EXCELLENT! A great way to tour the area and get a mini history lesson as well as delectable bites!!

Brilliant, informative tour - high point of our visit to NYC!

Our guide was waiting for us and began immediately (we were a group of 2). She was uber-generous with her stories; witty and fun and sooo informative. Learned so much and kept having the most lovely surprises, as food materialized in front of us over and over. Take this tour!! So worthwhile, and puts a lot into context for the remainder of your time in the city.

Like a Local Tours - 5 Stars!

The tour guide was so knowledgeable about the area, funny, friendly, extremely personable. I would say that the tour guide really made the tour memorable. They took us to a area in Williamsburg that was on the river and had the greatest view of the city, something we would have never found on our own. I would definitely suggest this tour if you are visiting and want to have a fun experience in Brooklyn.

Superb food and High Line tour.

A fabulous combination of one of NY's best food hotspots, and the superb High Line linear park winding it's way through incredibly varied architecture and art installations. The selection of Chelsea Market outlets we visited trying many and varied food samples was very well chosen. Our guide Kate was very knowledgeable and a great companion. Definitely a 5*+ experience.

Like A Local Tours pays respect to the Munsee Lenape ancestors, past, present and future. We acknowledge that the work of Like A Local Tours is situated and happening on the Lenape island of Manhattan (Mannahatta) and more broadly in Lenapehoking, the Lenape homeland.

Part of all of our work is to bring awareness to these lineages that came before us. We, at Like A Local Tours, are situated within an interwoven network of historical and contemporary relationships with the Lenape people, whom we wish to honor and acknowledge as the original stewards and caretakers of this land, the elders and ancestors who have lived here far before we arrived. The traditional Lenapehoking stretches from upstate New York and the Catskills to the Delaware Bay.

It is within Like A Local Tours’ responsibility as a current steward and actor of this sacred land to disseminate knowledge about Native peoples and the land’s history with them. One of our commitments is to respect diversity and inclusion. To this regard, we are currently also going beyond this land acknowledgement and are seeking to integrate the acknowledgement by building relationships with Lenape and other indigenous communities and initiatives through partnerships, historical recognitions, service and learning efforts to implement Lenape wisdom into our processes and life-way. We are looking forward to supporting initiatives through our business and your support and purchases of our beautiful flowers such as the Redhawk Native Arts Council, the Lenape Center and the Manahatta Fund.
